congresswoman michele bachmann has amassed quite a treasure chest for the re-election bid for the house seat there. as of july 25th, bachmann has raised and spent nearly $16 million according to the fcc report reports and that is more of any member of the house, and second to only john boehner, the speaker who has raised $18 million this election cycle. since her election to congress in 2006, the tea party star has been making an aggressive push for more tea party representation in the house. bachmann is now in a very close race with democrat jim graves, her first significant challenger since running for that seat back in 2006. joining me now to talk about it, in minneapolis, jennifer brooks of the "minnesota star tribune." jennif jennifer, good afternoon to you. >> hi. >> and congresswoman bachmann does not have trouble getting people to write cheshgs but there was an internal poll that notes that she has a pretty small lead that is well within the margin of error. why is bachmann facing such a strong challenge there in minnesota? >> well, certainly when the year began we never thought that

republicans and the party establishment including those in congress and about candidates like michele bachmann or rick perry and the long history of the gifted remarks. it seemed to me that many of them, that is the republican establishment, was simply a phrase to condemn such rhetoric to speak in favor of social tolerance. b's leaders were not just uninformed about gay issues i think but frankly scared to death of any discussion of them and i think that plays into the hands of organized bigotry. what most analysts expected was going to be another election about economic issues and replacing much of the legislation passed by the obama administration like the election in 2010, was suddenly hijacked or the so-called values voters crowds and social issues were suddenly at the top of the republican list of priorities often getting the lion's share of attention during those endless number of debates and 2011. such as when a gay servicemember when asked a question during one of the republican debates. so in spite of the fact that in the race there were pro-gay writes candidates like congressman ron

of michele bachmann, who is a darling of the religious right. they don't care particularly, i would assume, about her religious foibles. what they care about is the bottom line. and these religious right candidates, many of them believing in the health and wealth, name it and claim it prosperity gospel, believe that the rich are sanctified and the poor punished. >> many of those people on the right would tell you that the fall in the income of middle-class people and others has been because of obama's economic policies. >> i think they're suffering from selective amnesia. they also don't understand that george bush doubled the national debt, that the original meltdown on wall street occurred during george bush's watch, and by the time obama became president in 2009, we were already well into the recession. now i don't defend him in every way. i don't say that everything he's done is right by any means. i have all kinds of issues with him on the health care legislation. for instance, his willingness to play ball with pharma made the bill cost a lot more than it need. >> the pharmaceutical i

, gosh, she was mean and unladylike. i mean this is somebody who kind of makes michelle bachmann look like a hippie. >> wow. >> michele bachmann, hippie. >> i want to bring you in here and set the context, many people watching me feel like gosh, claire mccaskill seems much more reasonable and senatorial than her challenger todd akin, than the guy calling her all these names, ma some nistic games. in july he was up by five points. in august, she's now up by nine points, but the money may be coming back from republicans here. >> right. >> how do you make sense of a shift in the polls and republicans saying we're over this guy, done with him, pulling out, maybe not. >> because they're liars. they think they can hold on -- grab a senate seat an he's the one they will put their money back in. that's always been true. i said it the day they were pulling out. and if i were claire mcskas kill i would embrace the wild cat label, i'm a wild cat fighting for your family. i would be really proud of it. but you know, ma someny works with some and if he feels like if he kicks her again maybe he'll

see politicians like newt gingrich, like michele bachmann, like peter king, calling for investigations into muslim american community, and when mitt romney is asked how would you respond, how do you respond to michele bachmann's demand for investigations, he simply said this is not his campaign. this is not a way to lead, when you think of president bush, how he came out, say what you will about president bush's policies, but he did come out after 9/11 and repeated that we're not at war with muslims, this has consequences, republican party 89% white. lost people like my father who has seen it gone astray. >> in your father's distaste with the republican party become thick willingness to expand power. part of what i hear is if you're a small government, party, that ideology shouldn't restrict who wants to get married if are you a small government, have you a small government position. talk to me a little bit about how we see the role of a president in helping to bring about bipartisanship? you talk about the congress, you say there is a role for the president. >> a chapter in there abou

night. >> this is somebody who does make michele bachmann look like a hippie. he is that far on the fringe. >> let's bring back our roll call. lynn sweet, good afternoon to both of you. >> and good afternoon. >> let me start with you. here is the thing. on the outside looking in, you would think that akin would have been dead in the water after his first incident. what is happening here? what are we missing about missouri? >> well, missouri is a conservative state, first of all. claire mccaskill only won by a couple of points, a pretty slim margin anyway six years ago. but also the obama campaign, the national campaigns are not playing here at all. which means the senate race is pretty much one of the biggest games in town. when you have that kind of dynamic, interesting things can happen. a couple of reporters were out there this week and noted there were signs of life in the akin campaign. i've talked to a couple of republicans say they have seen internal polls still trailing, but within a couple points of her. >> lynn, about a month ago, it seemed all republicans were runn

, if you go back to pampa, i saw gingrich on stage, i saw santorum on stage. i saw michele bachmann and herman cain. >> yeah. this was, if anything, tampa was a celebration of republican unity but joe is right that for every convention when you have a challenger who has gone through a primary you do have to go through this process. let's not forget in 2008 at the democratic convention 40% of democrats still wanted hillary clinton to be their nominee. >> that's right. >> that was significant division. and obviously it didn't really hurt barack obama all that much. bill: to both of you in the 30 seconds left, todd, does this make a difference and how much of a difference united versus divided or division or unity however you want to define it, how does that play out in '64 days? >> it would make a significant difference if it were true but it is not true. the fact is republicans are overwhelmingly united behind mitt romney. democrats are overwhelmingly united behind barack obama. bill: joe, give you the last word. >> whatever divisions there are they will be unified by the republican

for missing and exploited children, i mean, this is somebody that makes michele bachmann look like a hippy. >> good line, by the way, congratulations. >> he is very much in a group of people that would never be part of the compromise that we need to find to address the fiscal cliff. he would never be part of the group in the middle that actually figures out ways to solve these problems, that works across the aisle, is willing to be. he can say all he wants about a voting record, but it is absolutely uncon troe vermontable from 1 to 100, i am number 50 from liberal to conservative. that means impart of the middle that wants to work for compromises and do the right thing to move the country forward. todd is going to be part of the fringe caucus that wants to convince everyone that the whole issue is that the government is the enemy, and it's not the answer, government is not the answer but it's not the enemy. >> so senator, the congressman said you did vote with barack obama 98% of the time. is that an accurate number? >> depends which year, as you know, joe, some of these look at confirmati
